North County Skatepark Plan Ramps Up

Vista's next skatepark could be built in east Vista along South Santa Fe Avenue, according to a published report.

Redevelopment Director Bill Rawlings told the North County Times Tuesday that he is negotiating with the owners of several parcels along South Santa Fe Drive near Monte Vista Drive. The plan is to build a detention basin there that could double as a skatepark, he said.

The city's last skatepark was demolished in August to make way for a $55 million civic center. The city has set aside money for a replacement, but some skateboarders have expressed doubt that it's high on the priority list.
